Story

We are enjoying the exploration of floral tisanes, and this unique blend is a celebration bouquet featuring French Lavender flowers and organic Egyptian Chamomile flowers.

Rooibos is a naturally caffeine-free tisane that is grown exclusively in South Africa, one of the 6 Floral Kingdoms. The southernmost tip of South Africa contains the only floristic region of the Cape. This “Cape Floristic Region”, as it is known, has been recognized as one of the most special places for plants in the world and is a World Heritage Site due to the plant diversity, density and number of endemic species.

TISANES (HERBAL TEA)
Tisane is the French word for herb, and it is commonly used to describe herbal teas. Herbal teas are infusions made from steeped flowers, herbs and other plant materials. Naturally, most tisanes do not contain caffeine; although a few do, such as yaupon and yerba mate. A true tea must be prepared from the Camellia sinensis plant, then processed for a resulting white, yellow, green, oolong, or black tea.

Green Cost

The price here reflects not only the labor of growing and cultivating the tea, but also the respective farm’s years of skilled handling, quality of regional cultivars, and oftentimes processing work that may include milling, drying, steaming, oxidation process, and more. We partner with friends like Savoy Tea Company to identify quality teas, where within we seek to uphold transparency and quality. Due to the varying weights of each type of tea, at this time, we are listing the rough cost for each tea box. This tea was purchased at $32 per kilogram.

$3.00

Transportation

This number represents the cost incurred while the tea was moved from the producing country to Onyx Coffee Lab in Arkansas. The price listed below is the cost we incurred per box of tea via designated express micro-lot shipping by air transport. It varies for each tea based on the overall volume and density of the shipment. The air transport rate was $50/kg.

Lot Size

Lot size informs us of one thing: the size of that lot. Forming a single farm lot can often take just as much labor and experience as the large regional blends, depending on the level of labor or quality standards applied to each day or week’s pickings.

A great example of this would be matcha powder, which is often a carefully constructed sum of processed green teas that are often grown in different sections of a farm to create a balanced and intentional matcha experience. It may be built up of many different farms. This often signifies that the lot was built to reflect the flavor characteristics or unique cultivars of the region. Meanwhile, a larger lot size of a Yunnan black tea may end up being used in a variety of different teas, based on the final processing and any additional treatments before packaging.

Transparency

We as a company believe that transparency is unbelievably important. The point of listing things below is not to justify what we charge or what we profit, but to give a realistic snapshot of the industry and how Specialty Coffee can be different than other commodity industries.
